Terrific bread, smaller selection (but very good) of baked goods. Great fruit tarts. Hole-in-the-wall neighborhood bakery to which people come from miles around, practically in the heart of a residential area.

There is not one thing at Clear Flour that will disappoint, more likely anything you taste will be the best you've ever had. Long lines, get there early with a cup of coffee, well worth the wait.

Terrific bread and other baked goods and worth the queue when busy, but they need to offer sliced breads when desired. Love their tomato rolls, German rye and many others.

After searching for great bakeries everywhere I travel, Clear Flour is one of the very best. Worth the time standing in the long cue on a Sat or Sun morning.

This place has been the gold standard for decades. The tasty, chewy breads of Europe available in Brookline! They have lately been creating wonderful things with Gouda and bacon in them. Breakfast buns that are sticky buns made of croissant dough! Scones that are fresh...More

Great quality products. Great variety of breads. Sometimes lines too long. If we see more than 10 people waiting outside (very limited space in the store), we generally will not wait. A wonderful asset for Brookline/Boston. Highly recommend the fruit tarts and the Épi french...More
